On this week's local news roundup, WCAI's Managing Editor Sean Corcoran is joined by some of the region's top journalists, including Anne Brennan of the Cape Cod Times; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Jim DeArruda of the New Bedford Standard Times; Geoff Spillane of the Mashpee Enterprise; and Nelson Sigelman of the Martha's Vineyard Times.

The news roundup is the best way to catch up on the local news. Among the stories in this installment: A Nuclear Regulatory Commission ruling about spent fuel rods has implications for the Plymouth Nuclear Power Station; an autopsy of a deceased inmate at the county jail finds that the prisoner had opiates in his system; an urgent care facility opens in Harwich; Mashpee's police chief hosts a community forum about the relationship between drugs and crime in that town; and we remember a group of five Martha's Vineyard women who 50 years ago decided to travel to the South to support civil rights.
